Gravel driveways are very popular throughout the United States. Though installation costs for gravel are low, the ongoing maintenance requirements are considerable, and it’s not the best choice for snowy regions. Quick to install, the material comes in different colors, allowing customized looks to complement your specific house style.


A concrete driveway is versatile, durable, low-maintenance and cost-friendly in the long term, making it another popular choice, but one that is suitable for any part of the country. The design of a concrete drive can be simple and traditional or made elaborate with color, texture and decorative flourishes.


A paver driveway can be a big boost to curb appeal; an enormous array of design choices are readily available. Although it’s more expensive than some other materials to install, a paver driveway carries relatively low long-term maintenance costs and can last 30 to 40 years.


Rich colors and varied patterns make brick driveways a truly elegant choice. Though expensive to install, they can have a big, positive impact on a home’s resale value. If installed properly, the maintenance costs are modest, and the material should last a lifetime.
